SE tank vent nozzle broken

Just accidentally broke off the tiny plastic nozzle on the tank cap for the vent hose. Any idea other than buying a new 100 dollar cap?

Too bad you are in Europe... I have a stock cap in the garage.

I think the SE gas cap vent is similar to the 640e cap, where I used JB Weld to re-attach the vent fitting.

Given it's plastic, cant you just drill out the inner diameter of both the cap and the broken nipple, then drive a short section of aluminum tube down inside to "sleeve" the two pieces back together. A drop of krazy glue along the crack should hold it all back together. Alternatively, how about mounting one of these in its place?
